Hey, Mozilla, what exactly does your tracker protection do if uBlock Origin, loaded up with the @better block rules finds 36 trackers to block even though your tracker protection is on?

(For extra irony, note the domain of the site being visited. *smh*)

@aral @better With a little digging I managed to retrieve their lists.

Blocked list
disconnect.me/trackerprotectio

Unblocked list
disconnect.me/trackerprotectio

Interestingly, some of the sites in the picture like facebook.net and amazon-adsystem.com are in the blocking list.

Is it possible that uBlock Origin is being triggered before the browser's built-in blocking is triggered?

Maybe a better test is to monitor the network tab with Tracking Protection turned on and uBlock Origin disabled.

@njoseph @aral @better Thanks, that's very useful. Would be interesting to compare the lists & also carry out the analysis you suggested.
